Hi new to the board and need help real bad, My friend gave me this camera and it came with no CD and he tried to download the drivers from HP but they aren't supporting it any more. My operating system is XP pro will this work if someone can get me the drivers??

I've seen the camera take pictures of my model cars but I can't seem to get drivers for it for my laptop. will this only work with ME or 98 SE??

Thanks Gary K

Have you tried it to see if it's recognized without using any special drivers? Many cameras are USB Mass Storage compliant and don't need extra drivers with XP. See if it shows up under My Computer as a removable drive. Your camera model has a PC Connect Mode menu choice in it's setup menus. Try it set to Disk and see if it's recognized that way.

Then, just drill down to the folders your images are in, select them, and copy them to your hard drive.

If it's not being recognized, I'd just get a USB 2.0 Card reader capable of reading CompactFlash media. They're very inexpensive anymore (you can probably pick one up for under $10 if you shop around).
